    Powerful free software allows BlackBerry users to call, text or IM anyone in the world with savings of up to 95%.

    You may remember Eqo from our previous feature. It's now out of beta. QO Communications, today announced support for its EQO Mobile application on BlackBerry Pearl, Curve, and other popular RIM handset models.

    "There are more than seven million BlackBerry users around the world who can now enjoy the many benefits of EQO Mobile," said EQO CEO Bill Tam. "Blackberry users are typically avid communicators and by using EQO they will save a lot of money on international calls to land-line and mobile phone numbers. Add to that the ability to access your IM on MSN, AIM, ICQ, Yahoo, GoogleTalk and Jabber in the same application, and you have a very appealing option for people using BlackBerrys."

    EQO Mobile features:
    * Works like a phonebook
    -- Auto import contacts
    -- Simply click a contact to call, IM or text
    -- No computer needed to call, IM or text
    -- No new numbers to remember
    -- No complicated callback scenarios
    * Savings of up to 95% on international calls
    * Savings of up to 70% on international text messages
    * Free IM on Yahoo, MSN, AIM, GoogleTalk, ICQ and Jabber
    * Free calls and text messages with other EQO users in 28 countries

    I tried this for a while about 4 months ago for receiving skype calls on my phone. It works, but you have to keep your computer on all of the time, which isn't practical for laptop users.

    Not a bad concept tho.

    According to their website, they've built their own global network. No need to keep your computer on all the time.

    do you still need the Blackberry network though.

    I freakin wish there was a way to send mail and IMs WITHOUT the service. This is peeving me off.

    Come on. I can't believe you think that. Why do you even have a BB if you can't afford the service? hmmm...

    Ok so I guess you are right. It is NOT "better" for any reason other than it being FREE.

    It does the same things as Jivetalk; however 2 things I don't like about it is:

    1. You cannot set up a custom ringtone for it to alert you. You must use the pre-programmed one and it's not that loud.

    2. Also when trying to exit a IM message chat window there are way too many steps.

    Other than that the app is good.

    I was not saying it was or wasn't better than jivetalk. I was just curious about the features it has compared to jivetalk. I mean for you to say it is better than jivetalk it must do something right. At least now people have more than 1 option for multi IM programs.
